October Specials

This month at the Book Place, we’re featuring a selection of books collected from many popular (but crowded) categories at just $1 EACH. (ENDS Saturday, October 16) Also, our Mystery hardcover/large softcover are reduced to 50¢ to clear things out a bit. 


This is a GREAT time to stock up for Fall and Winter reading! Browse our carts/tables beginning Friday, October 1.  

Donations Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation. We may also decline some materials if we are particularly loaded in a particular category, as our storage area is limited. 

Make a difference.. Shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7098721 and AmazonSmile will donate to Friends of the Marin County Free Library, at no cost to you.
